Super Bowl Line of the Decade

Rodney Harrison plays defense for the New England Patriots. Freddie Mitchell is a third-string receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Before the Super Bowl, for about two weeks, Mitchell ran his mouth, talking trash very publically. He claimed not to know the names of any of New England's defensive backs and when Harrison's name came up he said he "had something" for Harrison when they met in the big game.

In the actual game, Mitchell had only one (relatively meaningless) catch which came late in the game. Harrison had a sack, a handful of tackles, two interceptions and should have been MVP.

Flash forward to Monday night. Tom Brady is on Letterman, because he's the hunky quarterback of the winning team.

Here is a rough transcript, communicated to me by Mrs. Popping Culture:

Letterman: Now, before the game, all week, Freddie Mitchell was saying some things. What was all that about? (laugh)
Brady: I don't know. Didn't Harrison catch more passes from Donovan McNabb than Freddie Mitchell?
